International Standard

  • ISO14001 is a standard which allows organisations to focus their environmental efforts against internationally accepted criteria
  • It requires an Environmental Policy to be in existence within the organisation, fully supported by senior management
  • The policy must be readily available to both employees and the public
  • The policy needs to clarify compliance with Environmental Legislation that may affect the organisation and stresses a commitment to continuous improvement
  • The policy reflects the direction of the Environmental Management System
  • Periodic audits of the system take place to ensure that it is effective in operation, is meeting specified goals, and performs in accordance with relevant regulations and standards
